In the latest, The Pat McAfee Show, the analyst started the discussion on Arizona’s intense situation. McAfee expressed some really strong opinions, and his anger clearly reflected in his statements. He sternly voiced, “When you talk about ineptitude and whenever you talk about somebody just blowing it for an entire place. You talk about a $240 million accounting error where they’re talking about attacking sports.”

Everything that could potentially grow from the University of Arizona is doomed. And McAfee said that it serves as a nice reminder. He stated, “There are people in positions that we are just taught to respect. And say, yep, they know what they’re doing. They hold a title, they must be smart… There’s a lot of doofuses in positions of power, in positions of influence. NCAA is a great testament to that. Whoever at Arizona blew this is going to ruin the university for future times. We need to remember that there’s idiots in charge of places.”
